A great night at Conjura Blake's place! We broke out the champagne to toast the upcoming 25th wedding annuiversary of Ann & Rodger -- CONGRATULATIONS!!! The liquor was excellent -- but nothing like the stuff the late Marvin 'Popcorn' Sutton brewed in the hills of Tennessee

We then had a terrific catered dinner including steak tartar, salmon tartar and a spicy asian salad. Rodger treated us to a wild tale of his senior prom night [trust me -- you just had to be there to hear it!] & we then watched the rivetting story "Little Dieter Needs To Fly" which featured a true-life character from Rodger's prom story. The movie was a gripping tale of a pilot shot down over Laos who escaped from a prisoner of war camp & finally made it to freedom.

Fortunately, there were delicious desserts to bring us back to earth. All-in-all a wonderful Film Club evening. Thanks to Rodger, Ann & all who attended.


As an update to the film that we showed at our film club, i thought that I'd sen you the link to Diter's Wikipedia page:

It turns out that one other man made it out of the POW camp, this is his Wiki page:
